Mad Tea Party




I thought I saw a white rabbit wearing glasses and carrying a pocket watch run by this way.



Here it is! The watch!

I think I’ll follow him down the hole to give his watch back.

“Who are you?” I asked.
“I’m the March Hare. Let me show you the way” he replied.



Once down the hole he grabbed a hat and said 
“Here we are at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. 
Have a cup or three.”









The March Hare ate and ran. He left quite a mess behind.

I turned and saw a caterpillar who asked me who I was.



When I looked around there was the Mad Hatter having tea with the white rabbit I had seen before. They left in a hurry and told me to meet them in the garden when I had finished my tea.




I drank some tea and grew so small I wondered if I’d shrink out of existence.

When I ate this cake I grew tall again. I almost ate too much.



Finally, here’s the key to the lovely garden. I’m just big enough to use it now.


I’m in the lovely rose garden at last.

I hope you enjoyed my Mad Tea Party.

    I thought you'd want to know that when I clicked on your party link in Vanessa's comments, nothing came up for some strange reason.

    1. So glad you could come to our party. The March Hare certainly was a messy boy. He seemed to like throwing the tea pot lid with his teeth. The carrot cake cupcakes were delicious.

    1. Thanks, Rhissanna. To be completely honest, Sir Fernly didn't wear that hat for long. He did, however, have a nice chew on it. Then he had a nice treat of cilantro and all was forgiven.

      It was easy to say nice things about Alice Dreaming - it was amazing.

      I'm looking forward to looking at more of your work once I make my way through the Mad Tea Party list. It is taking me some time....so much fun!
